Wait, wait, don't cut off that song

Song-ID-filter: On This week's episode (10/29/2016 with Steve Young) of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me there was a song used as bumper music right after the Limericks section. I'd like to hear the whole song but Google is not helping me find it from the lyrics that they played. [more inside]

Song ID in between acts at a recent concert

I went to see Panic!/Weezer in Va Beach last week, in between bands they were playing music videos on loop. Others included Sia (♥︎), Dangerous (Big Data), Harlem (New Politics), and a bunch of other blah top 40 hits stuff. There was this one video, however, that I loved. Help me find the song!

Help me identify two 90s punk/indie/hardcore songs (male/female duet)

Back in Riot Grrrl days, a pen pal made me an amazing mix tape. It was 90% mostly-west coast hardcore (Los Crudos, Spitboy) and 10% Guys and Dolls soundtrack, I shit you not -- obviously the best ever. I have no idea what her name was and I don't have the tape or the liner notes, but there are two songs that were great and haunt me. Please reach into your knowledge of 90s punk and hc, and help me identify them. [more inside]

ID a song from this mid to late-90s commercial?

Help me identify this song from a vague memory of a commercial. The timeframe is about mid to late 90s and it was in the USA. I think it was for beer, and the song was foreign (my memory says French but there's no way I would have known that at the time). [more inside]

Song Identification: About Sneaking a Prostitute Onto a Military Base

A few years ago, I'm not sure how many, I was listening to an episode of Jesse Thorn's "Bullseye" podcast and heard a singer-songwriter perform a song sung from the point of view of someone stationed at a military base in either Afghanistan or Iraq, addressed to the prostitute that he's smuggled onto the base. I cannot recall who the performer was or what the song was called.

Need help IDing a song

I heard a song on the radio today that I really liked, but foolishly I didn't drop everything and try to find it, and now that I've forgotten the lyrics I attempted to memorise, I need help to ID it! The station's website only shows the last 20 or so recently played songs, so it's no help. What I remember is that the song was girl group-y, almost certainly from the sixties or seventies, and that the lyrics were in part about lying—I think there was some plaintive line in the chorus accusing someone of lying or something. OBVIOUSLY this doesn't narrow things down much, but I'll listen to anything that you think fits the bill!

What song did I just hear? Who sings it? "For tonight I say goodbye"

Alternative/rock song, a guy with a deep voice singing, kind of slower than a typical indie song, it sounded a bit depressing. The singing was kind of muffled but the only lyrics I heard clearly in the chorus were "for tonight I say goodbye" and the very last line of the song was "For tonight I say my last goodbye" and he kind of slowed down for the very last line.

Song ID: something about liking/not liking popcorn?

It's sung by a woman in some kind of retro rock-y style that I can't quite articulate. It's a list of foods that girls either.. like or don't like, and the chorus is about popcorn.. I think. Challenge: pretty sure this is from a Portland, OR band, as I heard this on the local Portland-centric radio station KZME. [more inside]

Help ID this dubstep track based on lyrics...

There's an old song I had favorited on last.fm, but I no longer see it in my favorites. It's got a bit of a dubstep (original twostep/garage style, not "brostep") feel. The lyrics are something sung through a vocoder or voxbox, or maybe even synthesized. Definitely through electronic effects. "Lo-ove you, need you, ho-old you, clo-oser... I .. need... you right now" Or something to that effect? on the first two beats of each line, I think there's a half-step or so glide up (i.e. where I have the '-' in the words) The song starts with this sort of vocal stuff with keyboards.

Song ID: Indie/Electronic "love song"

Song ID request for help: Some time ago I was listening to an indie rock radio station (probably 89.3 the Current) and I heard a song that I really enjoyed. I wrote down the date/time it was played and as many lyrics as I could get down. Unfortunately, I have since lost the slip of paper and have only a few scant clues to go off of. Here's what I remember: - It was a heavily digitized (vocoder?) voice, and sort of electronica-y, in the sort-of indie rock fashion (not like in the club or at a rave fashion). -The chorus included the lyrics (as best I can recall) the following fragments: "even though you really love [him/her]" and "...only causes you pain." I know how terribly little this is to go off of, but I figured if I had a shot anywhere, it would be here!

Please help me identify this song, so I can buy it from Amazon and listen to it a thousand million times and maybe someday put it on a mix cd!

Hivemind, can you help me identify this song? Beat : strong, very danceable. Vocals : female, thick (like honey). For part of the song, she ends each line with "uh huh." I feel like it's a (recent) popular song, but every time I hear it, there's too much ambient noise for Shazam! to identify it.

Song ID: "but in a hundred years, I'll be right here..."

[SongID filter] So I heard a song while shopping in the Banana Republic outlet store this morning, and I really liked it. [Don't judge me, Judgy Judgerton...] It sounded a lot like the Magnetic Fields (I'm still half-convinced the voice was Stephen Merritt), a little like M Ward, a little like Jens Lekman. It had a bunch of jangling bells, some shushy instrumental bedding, and the only lyric I can remember being repeated: "but in a hundred years, I'll be right back here." It's not a lot to go on, but by your powers combined ...
